The Panou Family
Roslindale, Boston$25/hr  |  1 kid
Hello! We are a family of 3 with an 11 month old boy in the Roslindale area, close to JP. Having recently moved to Boston from CA 1 year ago, we look forward to building relationships with other families here. We both work in healthcare as a radiologist and an oncology nurse. We are looking for a family who has a child of similar age to start this fall. Since I currently work from home, weekdays and hours for drop off and pick up are flexible (either part time or full time). We are interested in forming a nanny share with another family in the nearby areas of JP, Roslindale, Westwood, Brook Farm, Forest Hills, Chestnut Hill, and Newton.

Main responsibilities would include maintaining a regular nap and feeding schedule, changing diapers/clothing as needed and providing interactive play, walks etc. Our son is very social, easy going & so far has enjoyed playing with other children.
